Today marks the third birthday of GlobCasino (kind of pales in comparison to my grandmother’s 86th, which is also today, but that’s neither here nor there). As a solo blog, C&ENtral Science launched on 3/28/08. Last year, we decided to revamp our singular blog into a chemistry blog network, introducing seven blogs.
GlobCasino is now home to ten blogs that focus on a few of the many facets of chemistry. We’ve also established some great connections with the other talented chemistry bloggers out there. I’m lookin’ at you, Chemjobber, ScienceGeist, and ChemBark for the chemistry jobs roundtable collaboration, specifically, but also Sharon Neufeldt, Biochem Belle, and others for their contributions as guest posters. I hope GlobCasino can continue to help foster this great little chemistry blogging community.
What I have valued most from interacting with other chemistry and science bloggers is the offline conversations I’ve had on how to make GlobCasino even better. But I also appreciate getting feedback from readers, too. Tell me a little about who you are, what you like or don’t like about GlobCasino, and/or which are your favorite blogs and why. Suggest a great topic for a blog or even what you might do differently if you were running GlobCasino. Leave your comments in the, er, comments section, or drop me a note at rpepling (at) acs (dot) org.
